Railfan Pictures of the Week - 04/02/2017

CSX Trenton Line Langhorne and CP Berry

Langhorne and Philadelphia PA

November 30 2016

In the rain at Langhorne, Loram Railgrinder LMIX 3405 (RG405) passes the defector detector at MP 24.0
It's been a few years since I saw this unit, the last time in 2013 on the NS Morrisville Line in Norristown PA. Back in 2009, Harsco had the job on the Trenton Line, and Loram before that in 2004.
The unit's three grinders were not operating at the time, which is a shame as they could have taken advantage of the rain to keep down the inevitable brush fires that crop up as a result of the sparks from grinding.
The railgrinder was held at CP Berry while MOW cleared up ahead. That gave the trailing high rail time to catch up. His job would normally be fire spotting.
